Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and NCSA Mosaic implemented a 216-color palette that won't dither (i.e., vary the pattern of dots in an image) on different platforms and is "browser safe" (in other words, these 216 colors will always look the same, no matter what platform or browser is being used).
